Interim national govt, unconstitutional -Adoke

The Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Mr. Mohammed Adoke (SAN), has said that Nigeria’s constitution has no provision for interim national government.

Adoke, who stated this in a statement in Abuja, said his clarification became necessary in view of calls by some Nigerians for interim national government.

He stated, “For avoidance of doubt, it is pertinent to state that the framers of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, 1999, did not envisage the constitution of Interim National Government to superintend over the affairs of Government. It is therefore not surprising to observe that no provision for Interim National Government was made in the Constitution.”
